If his initial selections are indicative, the President-elect is on his way to putting together an administration of White male bigots, racists, Islamophobes, homophobes, and plutocrats. He already has the misogyny covered, as well as the personal corruption and nepotism. [Strictly speaking, nepotism is the corrupt favoring of one's nephew, but he does not seem to have nephews, so sons, daughters, and sons-in-law will have to do.]
All of this is not surprising, of course, but the speed with which it has become apparent [there are still two months until the inauguration!] is fortunate. The wimpish trimmers in the Democratic Party, whose natural inclination is to look for the good side even of vampires and the undead, will have their wishful fantasies disabused long before they are called on actually to do anything. I have never liked Chuck Schumer, but I must say he does not look like a man who would bring a knife to a gun fight.
The speed and vigor with which people are speaking up, joining together, and planning to fight encourages me to think that Trump will not have so much as a day of "honeymoon." Despite a lifetime of political activism, I am not by nature an organizer, nor am I a follower by preference, but I am ready to march now. I still do not know whether there will be many of us at the so-called Million Woman March on January 21st but I have plane tickets and hotel reservations, and later today I will go to T J Maxx and buy a warm winter coat [I gave mine away when we moved down to North Carolina].
Let The Games begin!
